The worlds most talked about couple, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, cover the April issue of the high-end fashion magazine, Vogue. After months of speculation, the soon-to-be newly weds have finally fulfilled their dream of posing for the cover of Vogue. Showing off her stunning (and not to mention, huge!) engagement ring and donned in a chic white gown, Kardashian poses in front of fiancé West, dressed in a slick black suit, as he wraps his arms around her.
The April issue is giving readers a firsthand look inside the couple’s “fashionable life and surreal times”, including a beautiful series of portraits shot by, Annie Leibovitz. Baby North (Nori), was there too and appears in a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot.
Editor-in-chief of American Vogue, Anna Wintour, has addressed her decision to have Kimye grace the cover of Vogue, writing in her ‘letter from the editor’;
“Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it. I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?),”
“As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue‘s cover. He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true.”
The April issue of Vogue is available in stores from the 31st of March, and digitally from the 24th of March.
